** The delux edition of the soundtrack was marketed as a boxed set called "Box of Cox."
** And then Dewey's song gets sampled by a rapper named Lil' Nutsac. [[DontExplainTheJoke Because Cox and Nutsac go great together]].


Added DiffLines:

* {{Sampling}}: InUniverse. Dewey's CareerResurrection comes when a contemporary rapper samples "Walk Hard" and it becomes a viral hit.

* HistoricalInJoke: The Beatles sequence has everyone dropping titles from Beatles and solo Beatles songs; like with the stunt casting gag, it's meant to underscore how unsubtle these moments are when played straight.

* HistoricalInJoke: Mostly related to 20th century pop music.
** Like Music/JohnnyCash, Dewey communicates with his dead brother's spirit, who grows into a young man despite dying as a child.
** Dewey's cover of Dean Martin's "That's Amoré" references Music/ElvisPresley trying to sing like Dean Martin when he first showed up at Sun Records, only for Sam Phillips to force him and his band to jam on "That's All Right, Mama" instead.
** Dewey going "smell blind" is a reference to famed BlindMusician Music/StevieWonder losing his sense of smell in a car accident in 1973.
** And then there's "Black Sheep," Dewey's attempt to be "artsy," parodying Brian Wilson's CreatorBreakdown when trying to record ''SMiLE''.

* CoverVersion: One of the songs attempted during Dewey's first recording session? A country version of ''"That's Amore".'' It's so bad that it shakes the producer's faith in the Jewish people.
** Later, during Dewey's disastrous [=70s=] variety show, he does a disco cover of David Bowie's "Starman." The music actually isn't half-bad, but he does it in a goofy spacesuit costume surrounded by go-go dancers.

A 2007 Creator/JuddApatow movie that parodies musical [[BioPic biopics]] like ''WalkTheLine'' and ''Ray''. Failed to make much of a splash in the box office, but is one of the better post-''Film/{{The Naked Gun}}'' parody movies.

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: When Dewey's bandmates call him out on his many, ''many'' instances of JerkAss behavior such as sleeping with their wives, Sam's one complaint is that he never ''once'' paid for the drugs.

** Dewey's first wife takes every opportunity to point out how he's going to fail at everything he tries. Even when he's clearly succeeding at everything he tries.
